With the support of the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department, Supervisor Jeff Sheehy has introduced legislation to improve Dolores Park and all parks Citywide. We hope you can join us at the Board of Supervisors’ Public Safety and Neighborhood Services Committee (City Hall Room 263) on Wednesday, July 12 at 10:00 AM to express your views on this ordinance.
The ordinance will:
- Ban glass in all City parks, except for infant feeding. This will reduce the hazard to workers, children and pets from broken glass and is based on a similar ban in national parks.
- Allow park rangers to issue citations under the Park Code, rather than having these matters referred to the District Attorney. This change will get quicker results when the Park Code is violated.
- Authorize the General Manager of the Recreation and Park Department to increase fines only at Dolores Park up to $1,000. This is similar to highway littering fines and will hopefully discourage litter in Dolores Park.
If you have questions about the meeting, please contact Justin Jones in Supervisor Sheehy’s office at 415-554-6968. You can find the legislation here or attached.
Thank you for your support in keeping Dolores Park clean and safe for everyone to enjoy!
